Build a Model in a Day 2012

On Sunday 2nd September Romsey Modellers will be holding its 4th Build a Model in a Day event at Ampfield Village Hall.

The aim as the title suggests is to build a model including painting and finishing in a single day. We will be starting at 9am with judging planned for 4:30pm.

Last year saw Malcolm Grant winning with his 1/72 Sherman .

The club will be covering the cost of the hall and trophies for the competition. As usual you are welcome to build any model ; the only rule is that to enter it in the competition it must be un-started at the beginning of the day  (including .bases or other display materials!).

Richard Stewart wins Best in Show at Hendon

Romsey Modellers came home with the Best in Show trophy for the second year in succession as Richard Stewart’s USS Hornet took the top prize. Following on from Paul Adams win last year Richard’s model was a very popular winner, getting just recognition for his 6 years of hard work. The challenge is now on for us to find a winner next year!

Build a Model in a Day 2011

On Sunday 4th September Romsey Modellers held its 3rd Build a Model in a Day event. 10 intrepid members took up the challenge and were found equal to the task when at 4.30pm after just 7 hours of hard graft some fantastic models were placed on the competition table. After judging Malcolm Grant’s Sherman was deemed a worthy winner, however everybody who took part should be congratulated on their efforts which produced models that would grace many a show’s exhibition tables.

Tangmere Cold War Competition

Over the last six months we have been undertaking a group build to supply models to exhibit at Tangmere Military Museum. Peter Lloyd sponsored the build, providing kits and prizes. The competition was judged at our March meeting.

On Saturday 26th March a number of members made the trip to Tangmere to present the models to the museum.  The models were accepted by the trustees of the museum, who expressed that they were very pleased with the models. David Burleigh was good enough to provide us a guided tour of the museum.

Annual Competition/Christmas Night

After last months round of judging for the class winners and runners up, the club’s final  meeting of 2010 will see a Best in Show winner crowned and awarded the John Cox Memorial Trophy.  A record 52 entries were seen last month from 13 members. Superb!!

All 13 members will need to bring all of their models back with them in case they are required for the ‘vote off’ for the overall winner. Members who entered in the ‘I ran out of’ class will not be required to do so as entries are not eligible for Best in Show.

Voting was very tight in some classes with positions being decided by just a few points. Class winners will be announced at 8:30pm, so be prompt!!

In addition it is of course our Christmas night – so please bring along some nibbles (tasty treats, Christmas cake, mince pies, biscuits etc, or some soft drink) and possibly something for the raffle. We’ve already had generous donations from Vic Short and Just Add Imagination, but a little something will help proceedings along. You may also of course wish bring along your wife, girlfriend, husband, boyfriend or partner to witness the great spectacle that is the Romsey Modellers Christmas night!!!

Build a Model in a Day

This year’s “Build a Model in a Day” event will take place at Ampfield Village Hall on Sunday 5th September. The event is open as far as models are concerned, you can build what ever takes your fancy, adding any after market details if you see fit. The only rule is the kit must be unstarted at the beginning of the day.

We will make a start at 9 am and run to 5pm  allowing time for judging any completed kits and announcing the winners.

Along with a coveted trophy there will be £25, £15 and £10 “Just Add imagination” vouchers  for the 1st,2nd and 3rd placed entries.

As last year we ask for a £3 contribution per modeller to cover the cost of the hall hire.

We should be able to accommodate 25 modellers, we are intending to invite members of Poole Vikings, IPMS Salisbury and IPMS Portsmouth.
